Title: Cassandra Syndrome I
Author: [personal profile] fennishjournal 
Rating: NC-17 (for canon-level violence)
Fandom: Sherlock BBC

Summary: This is a story about Sally Donovan and Sherlock Holmes. It's the story of why Sally Donovan, who is a conscientious and smart copper, behaves as she does around Sherlock Holmes (and no, the answer is not “because she is mean and hates him for no reason”.)

It is also a story about Sally and her believe in her own perception of reality. It is a story about manipulation, privilege, intuition and procedures. About trust and that interplay between the personal and the interpersonal that makes us human.

Spoilers: Seasons 1&2
Warning: canon-level violence (including sexual assault), references to racism and sexism
Words: 3799
Beta: This story has been a long time coming and it would never have seen the light of day without the enthusiastic and thoughtful beta-work of aderyn and [ profile] mazaher's wonderful feedback.
Thank you both so much!

This is the first chapter of 5. I think this time around I need the encouragement of feedback to get this story done which is why I'm breaking my rule of not posting WIPs. *crosses fingers*

I'm a white German woman who works as a psychologist writing about the experience of a woman of colour in the British police force. I'm sure there are mistakes I made and things I don't get and overlook. If I managed to do something offensive I would be honestly grateful if you could let me know. I promise I will apologise and try to correct my mistakes.

Title: With Trembling Hands
Length/size: 1,200 words
Rating: PG
Warnings, kinks & contents: Slight mentions of drug use. Gen. Mycroft, Mrs. Hudson, and Sherlock. (And the Cold War).
Author's/artist's notes: Regrettably un-betaed. Written for the commfest challenge at [ profile] sherlockbbc LJ AO3

Summary/description: Sherlock is a black sheep, and Mrs. Hudson understands.

It is a long cold war. London is mini skirts and free love, but Century House seems stuck in an earlier time. The men smell of smoke and brandy. Martha remembers the darned socks and the fish and chip teas of her childhood.

This is not an easy place to work, the other secretaries tell her. They refer to themselves as "girls," — they are never more than that.

Darling, the men call her, and love, and occasionally sweetheart. They leave tea trays on her desk, cigarette butts floating in the curdled dregs. She is privy to the most extraordinary secrets, spoken in elevators while she stands demure and invisible in the corner.

TITLE: Sonata Form
AUTHOR: cj_ludd18
FANDOM: Sherlock
SUMMARY: A fascinating glimpse of the lives of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes from the time Sherlock is ten to the time he's thirty.

Oh, God, I &hearts this story SO MUCH, I can't tell you - I mean, I'm always loath to say "this is my favourite such-and-such", but if it isn't my very favourite story in the fandom so far, it's easily in my top three. And I'm saying that as someone who really didn't much care for Gatiss's iteration of Mycroft Holmes - I'm afraid he's one of those actors who are too inextricably linked with previous, over-the-top pastichey kind of performances (wai halo there, League of Gentlemen), with the result that I never ever see them as the character, just the actor. So, you know - Mycroft was probably my least favourite character on the show.

But this story? Rocked my fucking socks. Dear heavens. Just GORGEOUS, and layered, and incisive, and troubling, and unexpectedly touching. Love. It.

I've been compiling a reclist for quite a while, now, and have just given it a major facelift and updated it with new stories. This is something I plan to continue doing, so feel free to wander over and check it out!

All stories are alphabetised by author, not title.

All stories listed have a short excerpt or summary, but no warnings for content or pairing, as the stories themselves have headers, and the copying of headers for every story would make the list (more) unwieldy. The list itself contains everything from gen to kink, canon to AU, speculative future fic to prequel fic. A bit of everything, really. The only predominant theme is slash. There's no graphic or predominant het or femmeslash, though there is mention of background canon pairings.

Any broken links, please let me know by PM or in the comments. (Not here, I won't see them.)

Author: [personal profile] mermaid.
Title: 'Reading too much meaning from existence', part 3 of 3.
Spoilers: set in 2001, so no spoilers.
Disclaimer: none of the characters you recognise belong to me.
Word count: 2,200 words.
Genre: slash, although there's no actual sex.
Rating: R for language and non-explicit sexual content.
Warnings / Enticements: mentions of pornography, sex toys, power/pain play, and (hypothetical) enforced outing.

Summary: Attending Oxford was almost a foregone conclusion for Sherlock, but his future path is much less certain.

Author's notes: I am currently studying at Oxford University, so I couldn't resist the chance to depict Sherlock as a fellow Oxonian! This story is a Sherlock-focused prequel to my John-POV fic "Food for thought" (at LJ or at AO3), but it can be read independently.

Genre / Pairings: slash, with a little bit of het (Sherlock/Sebastian, Sherlock/OMCs, Sherlock/OFC).
Rating: NC-17 for sex, drugs and language.
Warnings / Enticements: angst, a dysfunctional relationship, promiscuous behaviour, sex in inappropriate public places, and recreational drug use. Also, Sherlock in a dress.

Summary: Sherlock excels academically at Oxford, of course. But he passes through college social life like a ghost; or, to be more accurate, like a poltergeist.

Author's notes: I am currently studying at Oxford University, so I couldn't resist the chance to depict Sherlock as a fellow Oxonian!
